Seeing a performance of Caraval has been Scarlett’s dream for as long as she can remember, but when her father arranges her marriage to a stranger she figures that her dream will never come true. That is until her sister Tella enlists the help of a mysterious sailor to take them to Caraval.
Caraval is a once a year performance where the audience gets to participate, only the Caraval is not the elaborate performance Scarlett thought it was. It is a series of games, that requires Talla to be kidnapped and hunted. Scarlett is left alone in a far away place and surrounded by magic, to figure out how to save the sister she loves so dearly.
